Song Lyrics

Now, nothing left, except to introduce you to some people
Whose lives will forever be a part of the city of Paris
These are our brothers, our felow troubadours
They were robbed of their stage 3 weeks ago
And we would like to offer them ours tonight
Would you welcome, the Eagles of Death Metal

Is everybody here having a good time?
I said can I hear you, is everybody here having a good time?

Take it away

Yeah

I was dreaming in my dreaming
Of an aspect bright and fair
And my sleeping it was broken
But my dream it lingered near

In the form of shining valleys
Where the pure air is recognized
Oh, and my senses newly opened
And I awakened to the cry

And the people have the power
To redeem the work of fools
From the meek the graces shower
It’s decreed the people rule

People have the power
People have the power
People have the power
People have the power, yeah

Here it comes

Vengeful aspects became suspect
And bending low as if to hear
Well the armies ceased advancing
Because the people had their ear

And the shepherds and the soldiers
And they laid among the stars, and lo
Exchanging visions, laying arms
To waste in dust and save the soul

In the form of shining valleys
Where the pure air is recognized
My senses newly opened
And I awakened to the cry

People have the power
People have the power, yeah
People have the power
People have the power, yeah

Where there were deserts, I saw fountains
Like cream the waters rise
And we strolled there together
With none to laugh or criticize

There is no leopard and the lamb
Lay together truly bound
Well I was hoping in my hoping
To recall what I had found

Well I was dreaming in my dreaming
God knows the pure view
As I surrender to my sleeping
I commit my dream to you

People have the power
People have the power
People have the power
People have the power

The power to dream, to rule
To wrestle the earth from fools
It is decreed the people rule
It is decreed the people rule

Listen, I believe everything we dream
Can come to pass in our union
And we can turn the world around
We can turn the earth’s revolution

We have the power
People have the power, yeah
People have the power
People have the power, yeah
The people have the power
People have the power

People have the power, come on, sing it
People have the power
People have the power, come on
People have the power, yeah

People have the power
People have the power
People have the power
You all sing it with me
Eagles of Death Metal
I love you so hard

People have the power, you have no idea
People have the power
People have the power
People have the power, yeah

The power to dream, to rule
To wrestle the earth from fools
It is decreed the people rule
It is decreed the people rule

People have the power
People have the power
People have the power
Merci, bon soir
People have the power
A bientôt

Hey man, I love you so hard
Thank you so much
Thank you so much
Thank you

We’re going to get the Eagles to play one more tune
The stage is theirs, we love you Paris
Au revoir
